The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

The Ordinary is a skincare brand from DECIEM. The brand was created to celebrate integrity in its most humble and true form. Its offering is pioneering, not in the familiar technologies it uses, but in its honesty and integrity. 

I have had the pleasure to try out their serums and the final one I tested was Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. Caffeine is a trending skincare ingredient at the moment.  From body scrubs to shampoo you will find it in an array of affordable and luxe products.  The Ordinary have taken a highly soluble form of caffeine, added green tea extract (EGCG) and created a light weight easy to use product.  Independent studies have shown that using caffeine and EGCG can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. 

I suffer from puffy eyes if I have been spending too much time on my computer or burning the candle at both ends.  Eye creams can sometimes exacerbate the puffiness if they are too rich.  With regards to this product - the water like solution is extremely light and one drop is enough for both eyes.  There is no tightening on my skin but within a few minutes, the puffiness started to subside.  I don’t really suffer from dark circles, but I do have a bit of pigmentation around my eyes.  I also found that there was a slight improvement to the pigmentation over time.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is priced at £5.80.
